What Would You Do?

Bastille

All This Bad Blood


Boys and girls wanna hear a true story?
Saturday night was at this real wild party
There was liquor overflowing the cup
About five or six strippers
Trying to work for a buck
So I
Took one girl outside wit me
Her name was Londi
She went to junior high with me
I said
"Why you up in there
Dancing for cash?
I guess a whole lot's changed
Since I seen you last"
She said

"What would you do
If your son was at home
Crying all along
On the bedroom floor
Cause he's hungry
And the only way to feed him is to
Sleep with a man
For a little bit of money
And his daddy's gone
In and out of lock down
I ain't got a job now
He's just smoking rock now
So for you this is just a good time
But for me
This is what I call life"

"Girl you ain't the only one to have a baby
That's no excuse
To be living all crazy"
So she stared me right
Square in the eye and said
"Everyday I wake up
Hopin' to die"
She said
"They're going to know about pain
Cause me and my sister ran away
So our daddy couldn't rape us
Before I was a teenager
I done been through more shit you
Can't even relate too"

"What would you do
If your son was at home
Crying all along
On the bedroom floor
Cause he's hungry
And the only way to feed him is to
Sleep with a man
For a little bit of money
And his daddy's gone
In and out of lock down
I ain't got a job now
He's just smoking rock now
So for you this is just a good time
But for me
This is what I call life"

What would you do?
Get up off on my feet and stop making tired excuses
What would you do?
Get up on off my feet and stop making tired excuses
What would you do?
Get up off on my feet and stop making tired excuses
What would you do?
Get up my feet

"What would you do
If your son was at home
Crying all along
On the bedroom floor
Cause he's hungry
And the only way to feed him is to
Sleep with a man
For a little bit of money
And his daddy's gone
In and out of lock down
I ain't got a job now
He's just smoking rock now
So for you this is just a good time
But for me
This is what I call life"

"What would you do
If your son was at home
Crying all along
On the bedroom floor
Cause he's hungry
And the only way to feed him is to
Sleep with a man
For a little bit of money
And his daddy's gone
In and out of lock down
I ain't got a job now
He's just smoking rock now
So for you this is just a good time
But for me
This is what I call life"

"What would you do
If your son was at home
Crying all along
On the bedroom floor
Cause he's hungry... "
